After a bit of investigation, the randart.c Markov chain based name generator is significantly better than the Elasticband one, so we're using that instead. Artifact names are still based on the long list of Tolkien names, scroll names on a random selection (every sixth word) from a Latin word list (plus some genuine magic words).

Random character names still need to be done.
